Sad. We seem to be losing lots of "important" people lately. We had this discussion with family that were visitng Sat. night. Good ones are dying but the bad ones just keep living on. I figure the Good Lord is waiting for the bad ones to change their ways before he takes them ( so to speak ).
Now that I think about it, there may only be 2 or 3 others here that remember the "Mickey Mouse Club" and Annette.
RK I'm old enough to remember Annette and the MMC. Just curious why you chose PP to post your rememberence? :confused: JD
I would like to think that those that choose to participate on POTUS are more hip on pop culture than most, and can actually discuss other topics besides dog training and politics ....
Does anybody realize that Paul Anka wrote the song "Puppy Love" for Annette, because Disney put the kabosh on the two of them dating...even though the "Beach Blanket" movies were pre puberty for me I later became a fan because one of the guys I worked with was the son of Robert Strauss who appeared in just about every one, and also Stalag 17, and was a long time character actor...We once sat at his home and watched old movies of his dad for about 10 hours...
In many ways Annette was America's first TV sweetheart....I also think that the disease that she was afflicted with doesnt get the attention it deserves
M I C...see you real soon, K E Y...why? because we like you!
We are losing some very memorable figures. The real sad part is all these are replaced with the high quality celebrities of today.
I remember too. O'Reily had a piece on the 50-60' versus today. In many measureable ways today is 'better.' I'm not sure 'better' can always be measured.
